The spring season has been good to Clint Brauer, owner of MGHonor Farms, Cheney. As a grower of local herbicide-free produce, Brauer markets his heirloom and slicer tomatoes, cantalopes, watermelons, spring greens, potatoes and peppers to Wichita restaurants and is testing a delivery service to residential customers.
MGHonor Farms exists because Brauer returned home from California two years ago following a career in the technology industry. He named the produce farm after his late grandmother's initials "MG" as a way to recognize her way of doing the "right thing" all the time while utilizing the farm ground where she once lived. The following photos offer a second glance into his operation, continued from an April story where he began installing irrigation, low tunnels and planting his crops as seedlings. A third installment of MGHonor Farms will follow in August.
